Bragi is one of the three main musical student associations in Groningen. Founded in 1882, it is the oldest and biggest one. The association counts about 100 members, divided into three sections: the large choir, the orchestra and the 'a cappella' choir that is going to perform in Bologna with a formation of 15 elements.
The 'a cappella' choir was founded in 1968 as part of the musical association Bragi. It currently has 26 members and since 1980 the conductor is Rein de Vries. Every six months, the choir change its program ranging between different styles and centuries. The 'a cappella' choir has participated three times in "Pythische Spelen", a cultural competition for Netherlands students, it was awarded once the second prize and twice the first prize. In June 2004 the choir also participated in the Schütz-festival competition in Hoorn winning the second prize and the audience award.
